Google appoints Ford ex-CEO Mulally to board

NEW YORK (AP) — Google says it has appointed Alan Mulally, the former CEO of Ford Motor Co., to its board. Mulally, 68, retired from Ford at the end of June. Over the winter, he was rumored to be in the running for the top job at Microsoft Corp., but it went to an internal candidate. Google said Mulally's appointment was effective July 9. He will serve on the company's audit committee. Mulally, who also worked for Boeing, is the only director with a background in traditional manufacturing on Google's board.
